42054 alternate - Wheel Loader




Alternate model for 42054 CLAAS Xerion tractor.

My second try on making one set MOC. I have decided to make a wheel loader, because Xerion comes with  wheels that suits a wheel loader perfectly. The main goal was to have easy operated wheel loader, so I have decided to use gearbox that works like that used in 42042 - battery box turns the motor ON/OFF, levers controls functions and direction they works in.

There are two manual functions, which are Hand of God steering and grapple closing/opening.
Motorized functions are arm & grapple movement.

The biggest challenge while building this model was to have appropriate range of movement of the arm, while using only three small linear actuators with their short stroke.

The model comes with full building instructions, that are divided into submodels (like chassis, cab, arm, gearbox, grapple, etc.).

    I like the soundtrack sounds like stranger things!

    Great MOC for a C model. I was able to fully motorize and make it R/C with an SBRICK. I used the bucket as suggested in some of your photos as well.

    This MOC looks stunning, certainly want to build it as well...

    Question: do I have to register at Sellfy?
    I would like to buy the instructions via PayPal also, but I'm not really willing to register at random sites to do so...

      Yes, you have yo register at that site.

        What a pity!
        No other chance to get/buy the instructions from you?

        Thanks anyway.

          There's a problem with sending that PDF trough emails, due to file size limitations :)

            If I were to buy one how would I get the instructions?

    Hi, very new to Technic sets, this site and building MOCs so please forgive this if it's a dumb question. I have ordered the Xerion 5000 set and added it to my sets list yet when I look at this MOC it says that I need one more piece -  but when I check the Inventory tab it tells me the piece is "1 x 24505" (Z24 gear drive) but there is no image and it says the part has not been used - so now I am very confused.  Can someone clarify please whether I can build this set or not?  And if so why is 24505 in the inventory if it is not needed?

      The inventory of the 42054 was altered after this MOC was added. The 24505 was changed into 3648b, and then the 24505 was deactivated. It happens sometimes that by adding a new set with the automated bot, exciting parts with a new LEGO-id are added as a new part. We manually change this, but sometimes we miss a set or in this case a MOC.

      I've changed this now also in the inventory of this MOC, so now you should get a 100%

        Thanks Toby, all clear now :-)

    I've ordered this set. After building the A and B models, your model really looks like something I want to try, The sample version of the instructions looks great. Very clear and high quality. I will most likely buy it some time later. Question about it: is there perhaps also a version available that has a white background?  I might want to print it, a white background would save tons of toner.

      I do not have a white background version, sorry :)

        Oh well, maybe I'll print it at work, Or just use my tablet of course. Either way, this is going to be a fun builld, thanks!

    really nice variation for this set!! I am trying to buy the instructions but there is a problem with the transaction with Paypal and Sellfy  It will not let me finish my transaction. If you could give me an alternative address for payment it would make things go a bit smoother!!

      Few people have bought it already without a problem, maybe it is a temporary problem with PayPal?
